Danny Godfrey ran 62-yards
for a touchdown, and more.
A Homecoming crowd of fans got their money's worth of the James Logan Colts Offensive Show Friday night, as the varsity scored 49 points during the first half.
This time, however, the usual star of the show, the phenomenal Rashad Evans, took a back seat to the phenomenal talents of three Colt running backs:
Danny Godfrey averaged 21 yards-per-carry in a virtuoso first-half performance. On one play, Godfrey galloped 62 yards for a touchdown. He carried the ball seven times in the first half, gaining 149 yards.
Joe Bailey, who was handed the ball three times, scored twice. During those three carries, he gained 74 yards, an average of nearly 25 yards-per-carry.
Justin Brooks, got the ball twice, and scored both times, gaining 48 yards in the process. Do your own math to figure the average on that one.
Captain Joe Bailey scored
twice on three carries.
If negatives must be found, then the most obvious one is that, for the second straight week, the Colts played from behind in the score for a few minutes.
Last week, Washington managed to lead the Colts 7-6 in the first quarter before the hammer fell on them.
This week, Kennedy's offense managed to score the first touchdown, putting the Colts down 0-6.
In response, the Colts rang up 49 points before Kennedy managed to score again in the third quarter, and continued to add points to bring the final score to 49-28 Colts.
With the win, the Colts go to 8-0 overall for the season and 4-0 in Mission Valley Athletic League play.
Kennedy falls to 3-5 overall and 2-3 in MVAL play.
Next up for Logan is a home game against Irvington.
Before the game, the student body rallied in the stadium in support of the team, which was introduced. Comic contests and relays were staged, a student dance troupe performed, the cheerleaders lead cheers. A highlight was the parade of class floats.
Below are pictures from the rally, taken by the Courier staff.
